Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

In order to sue the dealer, what you would need to demonstrate is that he committed fraud during the sale of the car to you. This would mean that he knew about the issues with the air bag before selling it or that the fuel mileage he told you was incorrect. This could be a little difficult unless you sue him and during discovery (where you request documents and other materials), you find that he has an email or letter that demonstrates he knew he was lying to you.

And unfortunately, North Dakota's lemon law does not apply to used cars.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
